Hm, isn't the obvious and simple way of implementing this change to just
create a second class of buildds that do exactly what the current ones do
but then throw out all the arch-dependent packages and only keep the
arch-independent ones?  Or even more simply, just designate one
architecture (i386 perhaps) to keep all the results of the build including
the arch-independent packages?

That's what I assume was going to happen, which unfortunately doesn't
imply fixing any of the problems you note.
